Sailors with an RV

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Robn & I have many years experience traveling the World in sailboats. Robn has almost circumnavigated twice. I have only made it 53% of the way around. We each were widowed and mutual friends introduced us in 2015. We are soulmates.

We bought our first RV in late 2016 to be able to fly back from overseas and visit friends and see more of the USA with less impact on our US friends.

I am a Mechanical Engineer, and an Amateur Radio Operator, N7ACG. Robn ran a Plumbing Business in Sequim, WA, from about 1979 to 2001.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Dave and Robn are both experienced Cruisers, Jack of Many Trades and good at problem solving, good with PCs and Mac computers. Robn speaks a useful amount of German. Dave speaks a little Spanish.

SaltyDave's Pets

Not any more, but we enjoy literally any friendly pets. Especially dogs and cats.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just getting started. We have only done the PNW so far. We may make a trip the the San Francisco Area in May/June.

SaltyDave's Hometown

We think of the Pacific NorthWest as our "home." Robn was born & raised in Lincoln, MA, did most of circumnavigation with her parents and brothers in 1969 to 75, but fell in love and got married. They lived in Germany for a year and then ended up in Sequim, WA, where they ran a plumbing business, until beginning a new circumnavigation in 2001. Dave (John David Heath, Jr) was born in Houston, TX, moved to the Los Angeles, CA area, age 6 to 14 and then the Puget Sound Area, graduating from the Univ. of Washington, in Seattle, in 1969. He has lived in Houston again, Baltimore, MD, and Reno. Our "home" is our boat(s). Robn's is in Trinidad. Dave's is in Finike, Turkey,

Enjoyed their visit

We hosted SaltyDave at the end of March this year (I'm behind in my updates/recommendations) and recommend them as guests. They were easy to host and we enjoyed talking with them. They have had many interesting experiences/information/adventures to share.

Pleasant guests

We had a nice visit with them. They are quite experienced with this boondocking business, having been long time liveaboard sailors. Their current rig, a small Toyota based motorhome, is very easy to accommodate.
They are welcome back here any time.

You will enjoy their visit!

Stayed two nights with us. The weather was atrocious but we had a couple of hours when they first arrived to kibbutz and thoroughly enjoyed the interchange. Would readily host them again.
